I am advised that the commissioner does have responsibility for upholding the objects of the act and the report to parliament will include an assessment of how the commissioner has promoted the objects of the act, including the reduction of unnecessary regulatory obligations. My recollection is there is a provision in the budget for this reform, but I might have to take on notice the details of that at this point.
